The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) is the City of Pittsburgh's economic development agency. The URA’s goals are to create jobs, increase the city's tax base, and improve the vitality of businesses, neighborhoods, and the City's livability as a whole.
Since 1978, the URA has been helping City of Pittsburgh residents buy a home or improve their existing home through a wide array of mortgage and home improvement products that vary in features and eligibility, such as: no-equity home repair term loans, with rates as low as 0%; loans with no income limits; grants for down payment and closing costs assistance; and emergency repair programs for low income homeowners.
The URA also finances for-sale housing developments and rehabilitations across the City of Pittsburgh. Search our database of available homes to find your perfect residence in the City of Pittsburgh.
Interest-free, deferred second mortgage financing is also available to qualified buyers to help purchase one of these URA-financed, single-family homes.
